Scraping By: Reconsidering Law & Technology for Online Data Collection—May 19, 2022

May 17, 2022

ACM's US Technology Policy Committee (USTPC) will host a HotTopics webinar session, "Scraping By: Reconsidering Law & Technology for Online Data Collection" this Thursday, May 19 from 5:00–6:30pm EDT. Join panelists as they discuss the ramifications of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit's April HiQ ruling. Will it usher in a Golden Age of security research, pave a path to financial ruin for now-lucrative websites, threaten personal privacy, dangerously take the CFAA out of law enforcement’s prosecutorial quiver, or all/none of the above?

  • Megan Iorio, Senior Counsel and Amicus Director at the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)
